Prebiotic supplementation improves gastrointestinal health and immune function in livestock. Inulin type prebiotics occupies top position in the list of prebiotics because of their availability from a wide resources with minimum cost involvement and includes a group of biomolecules viz.; inulin, oligofructose and fructo-oligosaccharides Inulin is one of the fructans, naturally occurring in many plants, mostly extracted from chicory root (Cichorium intybus).So the effect of prebiotic on growth performance, faecal characteristic, immunity and antioxidant are presented
